landed in tel aviv, met with prime minister benjamin netanyahu. later on she will meet with mahmoud abbas, then go to israel, to cairo, to meet with mohammed morsi. what are you hearing about what's come out of her talks with netanyahu? >> well, they met for about two hours, and it wasn't just with the prime minister, but the defense minister of israel, the foreign minister, the national security team. they spent two hours going over what's going on. the statement released by the state department says she was briefed on the israeli position on all these issues. she's making it clear she wants to see a deescalation of what's going on. she uses the word a calm. they are avoiding the word cease-fire for right now but throughout the day, as you know, there was speculation coming from hamas and egyptian officials that they were close to a cease-fire agreement. the israelis downplaying that possibility, saying they weren't there until they actually had an agreement. there's no agreement and if anything, it looks like there was an intensification of the shelling in southern israel today by hamas
. >> woodruff: a short time later this afternoon, israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu told reporters he leaves open the possibility of a ground invasion of gaza at a later date, but agreeing to a ceasefire made sense now. >> i know there are citizens expecting a more severe military action, and perhaps we shall need to do so, but at this time the right thing for the state of israel is to use this opportunity to achieve a long- lasting ceasefire. >> brown: the deal followed another bloody day in israel and gaza. we begin with a report by john irvine of independent television news in tel aviv. he filed it soon after the cease fire was announced. >> reporter: as the world's top diplomats were trying to write a new chapter, the israeli- palestinian conflict was clinging stubbornly to the same old narrative. depressingly familiar, bus bombings were back. it may be six years since the last big explosion like this in tel aviv, but the emergency services are old hands. they quickly established that the bomber had fled on foot. and soon, the security had a suspect. we watched as he was strip sea
know, benjamin netanyahu did sort of leave the door open for further military offensive, even as this cease-fire holds. what can you tell us about the troop buildup there along the border? >> reporter: yeah, it's very interesting. because that's something that he's always been saying, since the impinge, that a military ground operation is something that is still very much in the cards. and of course, as you said, quite rightly, this is still a very delicate cease-fire, that both sides are monitoring, and of course the israeli military is monitoring as well. nevertheless, we're already seeing troops withdraw from the border. we were at a site earlier today that had a lot of armored personnel carriers in it, and also a lot of ground troops in it. we saw those troops packing up. we saw trucks getting ready to bring armored personnel carriers back into their bases. so it seems as though the military withdrawal has already started. however, the military still very closely monitoring the situation in gaza, whether or not rockets will be flying out of that place. and of course, need-
from hamas to benjamin netanyahu, clinton, president obama, everyone had good things to say about morsi who is emerging as a pragmatic guy and politician but as a regional star. hillary clinton spent hours with morsi and his foreign minister talking about stopping the hostilities and negotiating everything else later. this time with morsi as the mediator, today in "the new york times" you can actually see the turnaround in president obama's thinking about morsi. it started out to be mistrustful of him but warming up to him the more he worked with the guy and frankly the more he needed him. so now you've got talk of morsi has being this missing piece, that kind of changes the whole dynamic in the middle east. he is the arab head of state with great leverage over radical groups like hamas. he's a friend of the united states, a friend of israel still, formally, and that sounds great but first morsi has a lot to do here and at home. he needs to be able to prove that he can enforce what he's brokered, which is as we have all said, a very fragile cease-fire. >> a very fine diplomatic line he
in phone conversations, not only with benjamin netanyahu, which he spoke with him just about every day, but also with president morsi, spoke with him frequently, as well. in fact, the president left the summit to get a phone call with president morsi, told his advisers that if morsi called back they should wake him. he did call back at 2:30 in the morning. the president took that call. the president also speaking with him on returning to the united states aboard air force one. and so there were a lot of conversations that the president conducted behind the scenes on the phone. the white house giving a lot of credit to secretary of state clinton. but also pointing out the president played a very important role, joe. >> i would like to ask you both, starting with jill. did we know behind the scenes there were very good chances of success in this when hillary clinton first set out on this trip, or was this more of a role of the dice? jill? >> reporter: well, i think it's kind of a combination of both. after all, the president had been on the phone, secretary clinton had been on the phone.
